IRAN: Proposed education minister accused of making up his degrees
Los Angeles Times / //

Did President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's nominee as head of the nation's higher education system fake his university degrees?

According to an investigation by a reformist website,, Kamran Daneshjoo, Ahmadinejad's proposed minister of higher education, has lied about his academic credentials by claiming that he obtained British university degrees.

Daneshjoo teaches at Tehran's Iran University of Science and Technology, the same institution from which Ahmadinejad emerged.
